WINDER, Ga. -(Ammoland.com)- Consider an already large .45 ACP round, which has proven over many years to stop fights quickly, and render it 2-3 times more effective.

That's some serious stopping power.

The 230 grain .45 ACP at 850 FPS was designed to stop or wound people quickly on a battlefield.

A benefit on the battlefield but not for civilian self-defense due to over penetration of the intended target and becoming a danger to others.

Newer and hotter .45 ACP hollow point rounds in the 185 grain 1,000 FPS range are an improvement.

They expand up to .65 caliber (16.51 millimeters) yet still produce over penetration harming property or innocent people.

Here's the good news. The new G2 Research Civic Duty .45 ACP + P round solves several problems.

It is designed to penetrate 6 to 8 inches in ballistic gel, depositing all its energy into the target. The design prevents it from passing through the target, instead quickly and fully opening inside the gel or fluid to prevent over penetration.

It will expand to nearly 11/2 inches (nearly 38 millimeters). The large copper petals open like airplane propellers causing a large wound channel. It will stop the fight–quickly!

MSRP $59.99 a box of twenty. These G2 Research Civic Duty rounds are individual CNC machined bullets.

This level of engineering is needed to predict performance and maximum consistency for civilian self-defense.

Specifications:

  • Caliber: .45ACP +P
  • Bullet: 164 grain solid copper CNC machined petal pealing hollow point.
  • Velocity: 1020 fps from 5-inch 1911 pistol

About G2 Research:

G2 Research specializes in the evolution of ammunition. Solid copper fracturing R.I.P. and RipOut, Maximum Expansion Trident & Cold Tracer V.I.P. Round

Everybody has thier favorite blle or round. But how many have tested what they bought to make sure it works in thier thier… Read more »

Um. Not opposed to “stopping power”, but what the hell is 11/2 inches??? Why not just say 5 inches or whatever is close to that? [2.5 cm = 25 mm = 1 inch] – so, therefore, one can assume 11/2 inches = 5.5 inches = about what in mm or cm? Why the camouflage?

I’m pretty sure it means 1 1/2 (one-and-a-half) inches.

Who is this person “Smitty”? Their comments are off-base to say the least. Smitty wants everyone to believe he/she is a total expert when it comes to .45 rounds. Really???????? Lots of opinions with no back-up.

I’m the guy with Google. The only one apparently.
Look it up. Look up Rem green box ammo performance. People saying good stuff? No? Didn’t think so.
Look up ball ammo vs quality hollow point performance. Got any source promoting the use of FMJ .45 because there’s no point in using quality JHP’s in that caliber? No? Didn’t think so.
I’m no expert, there’s just so much ignorance in those preceding statements its staggering.

I just looked up Rem .45 and the reviews are fairly good. I looked around but couldn’t find reviews where they were mostly bad. Yes, there were those few that gave negative feedback because the ammo didn’t cycle in their Kimber, or complained because they thought the ammo was dirty. Boo-hoo, I guess, but that’s not an indictment of the series. The performance, as I read those reviews, appeared fine, whether FMJ or JHP. Really, I don’t see the negatives you’re claiming. No disrespect, but thinking you’re the only one with a brain is not too bright. No hate, here.… Read more »

WAY over priced. You don’t have more than a buck and a half in materials here per round. Especially with modern machinery and production. They should be in the $35.00 per 20 range and they would STILL make about a 15% profit per box. A standard hollow point 230 or 185 grain slug in a .45ACP is more than enough to stop a fight (as John Moses Browning designed it). There are many .45ACP self defense rounds out there in the $30.00 range for 20 rounds. Like Robert Wilson said, the key is to shoot your weapon and fire a… Read more »

Not really needed for a .45 acp. It does just fine on its own as any old combat vet can attest, but what is really needed is to boost the effectiveness of smaller cartridges more often used than the 45 .

Arrrggg! I cannot abide folks who snipe at differing opinions without offering counter-arguments. You insult chsmith without stating why you felt it necessary to do so. Actually, it seems like it’s YOU that might have a knowledge issue. No disrespect, but he’s not fully wrong. The .45 really is fine for battlefield environments, but that ball ammo has no place here in the neighborhood beyond range practice use. The .45 JHP is excellent for its designated purpose, and chsmith has his own preferences regarding this caliber. Hell, even I hope to one day get this caliber. It’s a solid and… Read more »

Anyone who thinks ball ammo is OK just because it’s a .45 clearly has no idea what they are talking about. Don’t need to explain it, its perfectly clear.

Maybe it IS okay for his needs. I love .45 ball, but I would want a more substantially designed round, namely JHP, for my own needs. I agree that it might not be enough for you or I, but .45 is probably the one caliber I can accept in ball for home defensive use. Anyway, it works for him, so I can’t hate him for that.

.45 fmj works just fine for putting holes in people and objects alike… what someone carrys is a matter of personal preference.

Tom, Jamie and Smitty are talking apples and oranges at least a little. For practice, which should be often, use a less expensive cartridge. You should shoot possibly one magazine of the expensive stuff every so often or find a practice cartridge that has the same cycle/recoil feel. For carry the most effective round you can find that your firearm likes. Likes = cycle in your pistol with zero malfunctions and is accurate at defensive distances. Just a thought.

Good idea. Bet your life and the lives of your family on an inferior product. Real smart.
There’s a reason the green box Rem JHP ammo is cheap, it’s junk. It wil NOT perform like a high qua!ity JHP.
Go ahead. We’ll spend the money you saved on headstones.

Just because you declare Green Box is junk doesn’t make it so, and just because you’re in love with another gimmick piece of ammo doesn’t make it anything more than a gimmick. Every now and then some snake-oil ammo design comes out and some members of the shooting community urinate themselves in excitement over the ultimate man stopper. This attitude most recently was evident when RIP ammo – which this appears to emulate – came out, only to be determined to be a dud. Let’s wait until some empirical real-world evidence comes out proving that this design is the end-all… Read more »

I’ve never heard of this ammo. I stick to HST and Go!d Dots. But any dummy can Google Remington green box ammo and find their own I to, I’m not here to supp!y it. I’m not going to be there when the stuff goes down either so if you think budget ammo will save your life, by all means go for it. I couldn’t care less if you was na gamble your life for $20 price difference.

I’ll stick with my Winchester 1911, 230 gr HP’s. They are completely reliable and expand just fine. And a box of 50 is less than these things for a box of 20.
